9780940159969: Provider of Last Resort: The Story of the Closure of the Philadelphia General Hospital

Rooted in values predicated on 18th century benevolence, the Philadelphia General Hospital (PGH), Philadelphia's only public hospital served poor and destitute patients in its last incarnation, inaugurated in 1927, and closed in 1977. A health policy analyst traces the national, regional and local public policy decision points, healthcare trends, legislative developments, scandals, and politics leading to the demise of this venerable institution. The book includes a list of interviewees and photos of PGH, its benefactors, staff, and current site successors, including the University of Pennsylvania's schools of medicine and nursing, and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Not indexed. Annotation 2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
